About Us

Let’s be real. Candles are powerful players in creating a space you love. You find ones you love, you spend your good hard-earned money on them, and once they have burned out you typically toss them in the trash (that’s not an assumption- here in the U.S. research shows that only 8% of candle containers get recycled). Overall, about 35 million containers end up in landfills every year. But what if there was a solution to that? And better yet- what if you could get paid to be a part of that solution?

Up-Wick was started to tackle both of those questions. Our mission – to create a sustainable candle that doesn’t skimp on scent or lack in style. Based out of Austin, Texas, we take your old burned out candles, and bring them back to life!
